In order for us to make the best suggestions we need pics of your GF
Also, since some gear runs true to size, some larger, some not, in order for us to make the best recommendations she should have on as little clothes as possible.

Only then you shall derive maximum benefit from our collective wisdom

j/k
Best is that you go with her to Motorcycles Unlimited and CG, have her try on gear and make sure it fits properly.

before you make the regretfully painful mistake of ordering online without proper fitment, take the best advice any member on this board could give you, and take your gal to see Patrick @ Motorcycles Unlimited first. Not only will he properly size her, but he will generaly meet or beat any internet deal, and he GUARANTEES FITMENT!

If it doeant fit, you can get it replaced ASAP.

also consider that if her gear doesnt fit her properly, she will enjoy riding less, and will be busy thinking of and fooling with the crappy gear you bought her because you were being cheap, and she loses focus of the road and doesnt react to something in front of her soon enough and crashes.

I dont know about you, but I wouldnt want that guilt over my head, because you know she will never let you forget it!

DUDE, you need to check out http://www.motorcycle-superstore.com...Closeouts.aspx

Today I ordered my GF an Alpinestar leather jacket for $199, its normally $399, also got her some Alpinestar SP3 leather gloves for $30...

You need to check out the close out deals, free 3 day shipping over $200. I seriously just did this an hour ago.

Definately go someplace where you can try it on, and for fk's sake when she tries on some good quality, inexpensive gear remember to point out that it makes her look thin!

Everything ordered! Thanks for the info. We spent big money. Now she wants another lid1 and a spare jacket? Don't ask about the boots? We are stimulating the economy big time. Did I mention the new rear stand?
